The proposed work with NCSA will move our proof-of-principle empirical potential optimization algorithm up to large-scale parallelization, and integrate with the Materials Data Facility (MDF). By scaling up our new algorithm, we can provide a valuable tool to a wide swath of the research community, while leveraging a novel use of the MDF data. This effort is designed to strengthen connections between materials modeling across campus and NCSA for future center proposals.
